Play video Weather across the Northeast is discussed in the above video.

Monday's dry weather is not a sign of things to come for this week with fresh cool air and soaking rain on the horizon.

Those who enjoy spending time outdoors should definitely take advantage of Monday's weather.

No rain threatens to put a damper on or ruin outdoor plans with high pressure in control. Sunshine will mix with clouds as temperatures rise to near 65 F.

The same cannot be said for Tuesday. Clouds will blanket the sky and some rain will return as the storm system triggering severe weather across the nation's midsection crawls eastward.

Temperatures on Tuesday will be held about 10 degrees lower than Monday's high as air flows in from the cold ocean. Some communities across Long Island and the New Jersey shore will fail to see temperatures rise out of the 40s.

Brisk winds will create even lower RealFeel® temperatures.

Heavier rain will arrive Wednesday through Wednesday night, impacting more outdoor activities and heightening concerns for flash flooding. Travel delays and slowdown can also be anticipated.

Temperatures will rebound later in the week as a couple of showers and thunderstorms keep the city unsettled.
